The Body Shop Mango Body Butter
Advantages: Smells fantastic, great moisturiser
Disadvantages: Need to be careful how much you scoop out of the tub
Mango was the first variety of the Body Shop Body Butters which I bought, years ago now, and I have kept coming back to it since. Packaged in a round tub like the rest of the range, the Mango Body Butter is in an orange tub with a label on top. It comes in 50ml and 200ml sizes - the larger one offers better value, but it is pricey at £12.50, although there are often offers on, especially online.
The first time I bought the Mango Body Butter was when a friend started to run Body Shop At Home parties, and I wanted to put in an order to help her get started. I chose the Mango butter as she had a sample and I loved the fragrance.
I've been using Body Shop Body Butters ever since, and as I mentioned before, mango is a favourite. I love the fragrance - it is so lovely and fruity, quite strong without being overpowering, and no matter what time of year or what the weather is, it smells to me like sunshine, and makes me feel summery.
While the fragrance is important, there is obviously more to a body butter than that. It is a product designed to moisturise your skin. I tend to use the body butter on my arms and legs; if I don't moisturise regularly I get very dry elbows, and I find that the Body Shop Mango Body Butter is really good at keeping this dry skin at bay. Also, if I don't moisturise my elbows for a while and they are quite dry and rough, the body butter makes a noticeable difference after only one application. The skin on my legs can also get dry quite easily, especially in winter, but again this body butter can keep that at bay, or banish it in only one use. When not attacking dry skin, the body butter leaves my skin soft and supple, and absorbs in easily.
When applying the body butter I find that less is more - it is too easy to dig far too much of the stuff out of the tub, and then you're left with slippery skin. It is much better to take a small amount at a time, and keep taking more as you need it.
I'm almost finished my current tub of Body Shop Mango Body Butter, and I think I might buy a different fragrance when it is finished; but one thing is certain - I might take a break from it but I'll definitely come back to it.
Summary: My favourite body butter
